I was catching up on my metaverse news this morning, and realized I missed the announcements about Virtual Worlds 2007, a conference about the future of Virtual Worlds in a number of areas, including entertainment and marketing. Now, opinions may be divided about Virtual Worlds like Second Life, but if you look at the speakers lined up for this conference, it’s clear that a lot of people are taking it seriously. Keynotes include speakers from IBM Research, Nickelodeon, and MTV. In addition, there are featured speakers from the Centers for Disease Control, Harvard Business Review, Sundance Channel, CNET News, and Walt Disney Parks.
The conference is scheduled for March 28-29, 2007 in New York City.
